I know, I know, I said I was taking the weekend off, but I had an experience with Sam today that I had to make sure I got down for posterity.
As background, one of the first things they go over in Cub Scouts is ways to be safe...on the computer, from abuse by Scout leaders, family members, and how to avoid being approached by strangers and what to do if you ARE approached by a stranger. Of course, sitting in the safety of our kitchen, Sam passed with flying colors.
I was out running errands this morning and when I turned the last corner towards my house, I saw Sam playing in the yard. I pulled over right to the curb, rolled down my window and in my best bad-guy voice asked Sam:
Me in bad-guy voice: "Hey. Would you like a piece of candy, little boy?"
Me in my shocked mama voice: "SAM!! What are you SUPPOSED to say?"
Sam: "Oh, sorry. Can I have some candy, please?"
Apparently, more practice is in order. Or I need to practice my bad-guy voice.
